This seems to be a fair "common sense" definition. Consider the case of
two athletes...Male Athlete X and Female Athlete Y. Male Athlete X has the
right to have his sport eliminated to meet a proportionality quota; whereas
Female Athlete Y has the right not to have her sport eliminated for any
reason whatsoever. Would Female Athlete Y be willing to make that switch?
If not, then by your own definition "equity" does not exist.

Gender equity exists when male athletes

(and vice versa) and still feel that they
